Capturing the best of shots is an art, which takes a lot of hard work, practice and oceans of creativity. That’s what great photographers can do.

But when it comes to shooting with a model, a photographer faces a number of challenges. From deciding a pose to composing it perfectly, it takes not only commitment but also a tub of ideas to get the desired outputs.

So, if you want to know some interesting shots for your alluring models, this is where to start.


Here we are presenting 6 innovative model poses for a perfect photoshoot:


The most basic thing for any shoot is to let your models know what are you expecting of them. Have some reference shots at hand so that you can prioritize the type of outcome you want. A style guide can also act as a reference manual if you already have one. This will help your models to get some ideas of how to give a perfect pose.


There are some standard poses for every fashion shoot. You can’t really start with a complicated pose and always make it end perfectly within one take. Going back to the classics can add style and grace to a simple collection. It also helps the model to enter a comfort zone for the same .


It is not wrong if your model keeps looking at the camera. Generally, when we look for an intense shot, we find models looking straight at the camera. It obviously gives another effect, but it is advised to have the model’s eyes roam about the room to capture more of its phases.

You can blend the poses by asking your models to turn their body at a certain angle or by looking at different directions like:

  • at the lens
  • Over the photographer’s shoulder
  • 45 degrees to the left or right of the camera
  • Up or down
  • At the key light


A model’s pose can be static or dynamic – conveying movement or appearing still. When you have to capture full body shots, implement motion. Get the model moving; jump, walk, lunge and shake. An easy starting point is pacing back and forth in a continuous manner.

Similarly, a lot can be said with a seated pose. This pose can be strong and distinguished or it can communicate relaxation or vulnerability. A seated pose can be as versatile, if not more so, than a standing pose.


While shooting for a particular brand, you must take care of the fact that your model is dressed accordingly. You would not want to shoot a model in nightwear for any kind of gym products.

Your model’s pose needs to show off the product in the best light. If you’re shooting a top with a detailed print, it makes sense that your model’s hands shouldn’t cover the torso – otherwise shoppers might not be able to get the full picture.


Beauty poses always need a lot of attention on the details. So much rides on the expression, perfect angle, perfect lighting, perfect makeup and hair. In beauty photography, details are everything.

One must remember that :

  • Whether it’s neutral, happy or serious, the expression is crucial.
  • Jawlines create much of the shape of the model’s face in a beauty shot. Use the shadows by moving the jaw in different directions.
  • Beware of shooting from a lower angle as chins and nostrils can unnecessarily become too prominent.

Next time when you are out for a photo-shoot, do remember the aforementioned tips and you are good to go.
